view gallery VIEW GALLERY

Stay cool with these summer-time buys that will keep you looking and feeling fresh, regardless of the temperature

1. Extract of Limes

£36, Geo F Trumper, trumpers.com

This summery, citrus aftershave is a timeless classic that suits the warm weather. It's fresh, clean and modern.

2. Frank's Beard Elixir

£7.50, Mr Natty, mrnatty.net/shop

Now that a beard is the world's coolest accessory, it's worth treating it like a valuable commodity. This will keep yours sleek.

3. Intensive Eye Treatment

£95, Tom Ford, 0870 034 2566

The man who once sold us sex now sells us skincare – and very good it is too. This cream will soothe and nourish worn-out eyes, restoring radiance.

4. Deodorant stick

£11.50, Clinique, 0870 034 2566

Don't cause a stink this summer, try Clinique's deodorant – one of the brand's most popular items in its "for men" range – and avoid unfortunate underarm tidemarks.

5. Energising moisture

£22, Kiehl's, kiehls.co.uk

A moisturiser with SPF is invaluable at this time of year, and this contains vitamins C and E, chestnut extract and soy too.

6. Sweat-resist gel

£12.20, Redken, 0800 0854 956

Fed up with your hairstyle dripping down your face when it gets hot? Made with mint, this gel is zingy and cooling enough to stop the rest of you drooping too.

7. Anti-hair loss roller

£21.90, Kerastase, 0800 316 4400

This new product promises to hold back the years a bit: simply roll it on receding corners and wait for it to stimulate growth.

8. Velvet Rose and Oud Cologne Intense

£95, Jo Malone, jomalone.com

The new cologne harnesses the delicate smell of rose and pairs it with a more masculine note of oud, a type of agarwood extract.

9. Ingrown Eliminating Pads

£26.60, Bliss, blissworld.co.uk

Nobody enjoys itchy stubble rash during the summer. Swipe the area after shaving with these astringent pads to prevent against sore ingrown hairs.

10. Clean Bar

£20, Dermalogica, 0800 591818

Work up a lather with this pH-balanced cleansing soap. It'll make for a clear complexion during the greasy summer months and is suitable for sensitive skin.

In this photo illustration a school student eats a hamburger as part of his lunch which was brought from a fast food shop near his school, on October 5, 2005 in London, England. The British government has announced plans to remove junk food from school lunches. From September 2006, food that is high in fat, sugar or salt will be banned from meals and removed from vending machines in schools across England. The move comes in response to a campaign by celebrity TV chef Jamie Oliver to improve school meals.
